This tale teaches the reader a lesson about greed and how it can overcome people, making them do bad
Throughout the story, Brutus was one of the few characters that understood the way power could change a man. He feared that Caesar would become a tyrant with all his new power and that Rome would suffer from his rule. He states this multiple times in the story. During Caesar’s funeral, Brutus states “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more,” (JC 3.2.23).

On the contrary the youngest and most humble sister tells him that she loves her father just enough as he does. This is where the theme of sacrifice all begins.

She left home because she was not going to lose her dignity by marrying someone who only wanted money. Lastly she sacrificed her power to live a common yet satisfying life.
The Warden was scared he would let Andy know the truth that he was wrongly convicted and he is innocent after all.

He sits out for revenge of all with his jealous envy and ultimately ends the play in multiple tragic deaths.
Hence, the sin of murder deserves to be situated amidst the acts of fraud and
It prevents them from moving on from something they can't change because it has already happened. The downfall of all the men who tried to prevent the death of Santiago was machismo probably. Colonel Aponte thought because he took away the weapons from the brothers and gave them instructions to go home that they would listen; his male pride cost a man his life.

Fear of the Lord is a gift of the Holy Spirit and fear of doing God’s will reveals an error in one’s conscience. When one is afraid he is lacking in faith because he is placing his trust in something other than God.
